Entertainment Studios has bought director Joe Carnahan’s new action-thriller Boss Level. Variety reports that the company picked up the film, which stars Mel Gibson, Frank Grillo, and Naomi Watts, from The Fyzz Facility and Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films.

The film follows a retired special forces officer, Roy Pulver (Grillo), who is trapped in a never-ending time loop on the day of his death. Wallis will play Alice, a dental hygienist who hates teeth but has a huge crush on her patient, aka Roy. Since Roy has to repeat this particular day numerous times until he can figure out who is responsible and put an end to the loop, Alice is frequently part of the repeating narrative, sometimes in bed alongside Roy as the first assassin of the day that tries to murder him, as well as in other encounters with him.

Entertainment Studios head Byron Allen said that Boss Level “is a powerful, action-packed, and highly-anticipated theatrical release. ‘Boss Level’ combines non-stop action with an all-star cast, including Frank Grillo, Ken Jeong, Academy Award-winner Mel Gibson, and Academy-Award-nominee Naomi Watts. We are thrilled to have director Joe Carnahan at the helm to deliver what we believe will be a blockbuster.”

The film is expected to release next year.
